Questions & Replies

  1. How long can this cake be stored ? And does it have to be in the refrigerator?

  1. I’ve been looking for this recipe since I was a little girl. My mom, who now Alzheimers, doesn’t remember what was in the recipe. I think I finally found what I’ve been longing for; a taste of home in Quebec!

  2. Added 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract. Baked for 30 full minutes and the cake turned out fluffy and fully baked. With a dollop of chantilly on the warm cake, it was divine. This is a very sweet dessert.

  3. This was baked in an 8 inch square pan and cut into 9 servings. I did follow Rita’s suggestion and reduced the syrup to 3/4 cup. The cake is very sweet and moist. This is better warm with a small amount of vanilla ice cream on top.

  4. What a great pudding! Very simple and quick to make the cake has a lovely light texture and the maple syrup gives it a great flavour. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I wanted to do something with the maple syrup I brought from Quebec and stumbled across this recipe. Not only was it really easy but it was extremely delicious!!!! I had to use almonds instead of pecans because I did not have any but it came out great anyways. 25 minutes in the oven and bam! Delicious maple syrup pudding cake! Thanks for the recipe!
